Home vs House..the different?

My question for you readers is " do you know the different between home and house?"
well, let me answer it in a story, once again from Mitch Albom latest piece called "Have a Little Faith"
" A soldier's little girl,
whose father was being moved to a distant post,
was sitting at the airport among her family's meager belongings.
The girl was sleepy.
She leaned against the packs and duffel bags.
A lady came by, stopped, and patted her on the head.
" 'Poor child,' she said. 'You haven't got a home.'"
The child looked up in surprise.
" ' But we do have a home,' she said.
'We just don't have a house to put it in.' "
From the story, we could sums up that home and house do bring a different meaning. Too different for us to be put these two words side by side. Home is where ever your family is. Home is your family. While house is a building where the family stays in, to have the shelter, to spread the love..
